The Basilica of Ste. Anne de Detroit Food Bank
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me. Matthew 25:35.
The Basilica of Ste. Anne de Detroit has an active St. Vincent de Paul Conference. Every Wednesday from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Ste. Anne’s lower hall, our conference helps “feed the hungry and clothe the naked.” Our volunteers minister individually to each client by asking about about family members, food preferences, clothing sizes, etc.
To be eligible to receive food at the Ste. Anne Food Pantry one needs to be in the 48216 zip code (valid picture ID required), or a member of Ste. Anne de Detroit Parish (parish envelope number needed).
Food and clothing donations are always welcome. Canned or dry food, toiletries and paper goods are needed. If you are attending weekend Mass and have a donation, simply leave it in one of the shopping baskets in the vestibule of the church. Otherwise, donations can be brought to the parish office during regular buisness hours. Monetary donations can be made payable to “Basilica of Ste. Anne de Detroit” in an envelope labelled “Food Pantry” and can be mailed to the office or added to the Sunday offering baskets.
If you are interested in volunteering with the Ste. Anne St. Vincent de Paul Society or at the food pantry, please call the parish office at 313-496-1701.
